(SOUNDBITE) (English) DAVID WISE SAYING: "It's scary, for sure, like there is a moment when your mind just goes onto autopilot and you go way too fast on your feature, so you donยดt let yourself be afraid.

This is nuts, this is beyond crazy and when you are in the air, it feels fine, then you grab the tail and it feels good." 5.

GENERAL VIEW OF THE AREA STORY: David Wise of the United States set a new quarterpipe height world record of 11.70 metres at the Audi Nines event held in Solden, Austria on Monday (April 22).

Wise, double Olympic halfpipe champion in Sochi and Pyeongchang, set the record with a straight air tail grab, breaking the mark of 10.82 metres set by fellow-American Simon Dumont in 2008.

A quarterpipe jump is where a rider lands back on the same surface he or she departed from.

Other fine performances included Andri Ragettli of Switzerland who landed a quad cork 1980, which was first achieved by fellow-Swiss Fabian Bosch at the X Games in Aspen, United States this January.

In Solden, Bosch performed a switch double cork 1620, while Anna Gasser of Austria, the 2018 big air Olympic champion, demonstrated her snowboarding skills at nearby Obergurgl-Hochgurgl.

The Audi Nines continues until Saturday (April 27).
